It has been over 6 months since the destructive winds and water of Hurricane Dorian made landfall in Marsh Harbour and pounded on us for almost 3 days. Horrific stories of survival and loss haunt those who were present. Homes and businesses were destroyed, many schools are in ruins, thousands remain homeless and unemployed, the landscape was forever altered and there is still no municipal power and water on most of the island. Abaconians have fled to other islands and countries without their personal items and their pets.
The progress has been slow and painful for many as families are trying to come home. With waves of families trying to make their way back to Abaco, the schools are not able to handle the number of children coming home with their families. March For Marsh is filling the gap with the teachers and students buying classroom supplies and distributing them to the schools that are open and the virtual schools that are sprouting up throughout Abaco.
